• 200 parents and carers to learn about Strengths Based Parenting from Professor Lea Waters, leading into Strength Switch Family Facilitation Courses
• 400 teachers to complete their training in Visible Wellbeing
• 100 pre-school and early learning teachers to begin their training in Visible Wellbeing
• 5000 students to spend every day of their school year learning skills and tools to help them thrive throughout life, no matter what the challenges!!!

There’s a lot of people to be thanked for making this happen & you can check these out below.
